At the 33rd session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva, Martin Kobler, the Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) issued an extensive statement on recent developments in Libya.
|The full statement can be found on the United Nations Support Mission (UNSMIL) website. Kobler begins by noting that the signing of the Libyan Political Agreement (LPA) last December created hope for what he calls the rule of law in the country. However, he points out that as of now Libya is facing a political impasse since the House of Representatives (HoR) has yet to "fully endorse" the LPA. Indeed, as he notes, in August it voted against the vote of confidence in the UN-backed Government of National Accord (GNA) as required by the LPA.|
